Yup, Nickelodeon's Star Trek cartoon is going to be Star Trek: Prodigy.

Ugh, just what we need, a ship of Wesleys.

So, a bunch of kids find a defunct Starfleet starship, get it working and go out and have adventures? Five Go Mad In Deep Space? With lashings of Romulan Ale? Granted this joke only makes sense if you’re aware of the 80s UK TV show The Comic Strip Presents...

More seriously though, I’m wondering if this will be set during the long interregnum between PIC and DSC s3. It seems to me that a “defunct Starfleet starship” only becomes noteworthy if there’s no Starfleet or Federation anymore. After all we don’t know what happens to retired/decommissioned ships; presumably they’re reclaimed in an environmentally-friendly manner. And how large will this ship be? Nothing really large but presumably but more than a runabout, know what I mean?

"After all we don’t know what happens to retired/decommissioned ships..."

Well, we know that sometimes they get put in a scrapyard, à la "Unification". Also, more relevantly, there's what happened to the Stargazer : Picard and crew abandoned ship and said "eh, it probably blew up after we left, right?" and it just floated in space for years.

Sometimes I wonder if that’s what ex-Flareites think. They often seem far too surprised to find we’re still here when they return after a long absence.

Here I am having to write “LOL” like a 90s-era caveman instead of just using a heart or “haha” tapback. [Big Grin]

I seem to recall reading somewhere that the ship the kids commandeer will be a derelict from the Dominion War. That implies but doesn’t require that it’s set in the late 24th century like the other new shows... though I suppose it could be set later, if kids flying around in an antique spaceship makes any (more) sense.

21 years and counting. My Flare account is old enough to drink now.

I'm slightly annoyed at Hobbes' rather rude decision to be much more attractive than me though. That's just rude. - PsyLiam, Oct 27, 2005.

The implication being that finding & fixing an abandoned war-loss starship is the same as restoring an old Camaro you found in a barn.

Well yes, precisely. If still a going concern, where will Starfleet be in all this? Presumably they're going to have an opinion about a bunch of teenagers digging up a long-lost starship, on which it's likely people died, so as to be able to get girls. And you just know that the characters are going to be all perky and, well, there's no getting away from it, excessively American about it all. Manifest destiny, self-expression, all that guff. Ugh.

Don’t know about “perky”. Most teenager-based shows I’ve seen are full of insufferable angst-ridden artificial drama. The upcoming “World Beyond” TWD spin-off follows a similar premise, a bunch of teenagers trying to survive during the zombie apocalypse. Don’t know if I want to see it or not, but I’ve been following the other two WD shows and I figure I’ll give it a chance, but my expectations are low... like subterranean low.
